'Ys: The Oath in Felghana': The Perfect Affectionate Remake

We are explicitly encouraged by the narrator to play as though we ourselves are Adol. And, hey, no problem, I play as guys all the time. Except the game is convinced that I'm absolutely sexually irresistible. It made me feel that I wasn't so much a character as a sex object, my very nature becoming the focus of every woman's obsession. "Ladies, please!" I wanted to tell them. "Love me for who I am!"
